beach combing

I spent a nice morning on the beach, the purpose of the mission was to find some tumbled beach glass.
I did a jewellery course during the summer and we were shown how to do wire work. The tutor suggested using beach glass or pebbles and wrap wire round them. She said that beach glass would be a scare commodity in the future, due to recycling and the more frequent use of plastic containers. I collected lots of "gems", some really interesting pottery pieces and glass with patterns and letters on them....
Now I just have to get the pliers out.
All the best, Ali.
